Good handles, well finished, good grip, are very well.



Found the grips a little fat for my delicate little fingers so turned them down on a lathe this afternoon to match my finger size/spacing ...... looking forward to try them tomorrow and find how much I really move my hands up and down the handles!!

I thought that pornographic (kite with no clothes) kite of yours looked great when I saw it the other weekend.

Three together are almost more than I can stand.

Go on Jonesey, tell me how they feel.

Received a blue pair of the ultra no snag handles yesterday.
Put the foam on the preferred position after some little advice from my friends. ;)
New pigtails to finish them.

A short session this afternoon......Mid-Vent/Race Rods....very very nice, i like the thickness of the foam (thanks Gary !).
Good work Barry !!!!!!!!

Best regards

Marc/Madquad

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Nice one Baz - so you can do separate port (red) and starboard (green) handle sets now - maybe that would reduce the number of "no, the other right!" calls heard on the field...

Baz:

Thinking I'd like to try making some handle sets like yours. Did you use Gr. 6061 aluminum rod or something else, and how did you "handle" the polishing and anodizing?

I can come by the handle stock fairly easily but will need to take the rod sections to an anodizing company to do for me, and I'm curious what to tell them to do. Is bending the rods after anodizing a bad idea? Posted Image

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks,

Hi Liketofly
In England we have T6 6082 3/8" diameter rod
the polishing was done on a bench grinder with polishing mops and soaps
anodising was done professionally - to preserve the shine they were anodised with a one minute etch - this doesnt eat into the aluminium too much and keeps the shine
the rods were machined and bent,then drilled,polished and finally anodised - I wouldnt recommend bending AFTER anodising
I hope this is of help

good winds to you
Baz
